There is no one who belongs at the children's table more than Skateboard Bobby O. The only problem is he would stand on it.

I thought the main debate state was the kiddie table. Should the place the non qualifying candidates go to then be called "the crib"? Just trying to help.

What? Only 65,000 donors? Where are they? They can't be from vote harvesting NYC. Couldn't she get Soros to pony up a million donors with the click of his computer. Maybe she had someone in the family computer generate 25,000 one dollar donations. She thinks she's popular but she's not. She definitely needs to sit on the little table or better yet, get out of the running and out of the Senate. She's failed NY, failed the country, and failed to get a high amount of donations from her commie buddies.

The good thing about the Democrat candidates is that they are smart, progressive thinkers who have great ideas about saving the planet and helping people. Moreover, they are compassionate and have high moral standards, especially about telling the truth and telling truth to power. Their progressive ideas are based upon the astounding success of progressive ideas in the past, and they all intend to run clean, fair campaigns free from even the slightest hint of election fraud. Also, we can be sure that media coverage of their campaigns will be fair and objective, but tough. We wish them all the best, and excuse me while I throw up buckets...

Are there any Democrats out there who are concerned about how the story of the 2016 election will be written in the history books, i.e., over two and more years following the election, spending so much money and time (when they could be writing and passing some needed legislation) trying to take down a duly-elected President. Of course, since fake news is being on a daily basis, we have to concede that fake history is being written as well. Hopefully, there are two or more monks in some monastery somewhere who are taking notes for the history books.

Exactly what is WRONG with the Demo-rat party and what they have done to America. Everyone is equal! Everyone is special!! EVERYONE gets a "participation trophy" ... there are no losers or winners. Ain't that grand? Only problem is ... life isn't like that at all.

Want to thin out the herd, and stop this endless and constant campaigning? The simple solution is to A.) Designate a start date for all campaigning for Federal Office. B.) In order to run for higher office, you must first resign any elected office you currently hold.

Ah but the story isn't over yet, #6. One of those MSNBC-contributing lawyers will find a note that Mueller had scratched on the side of his report and he will swear that it is code and doesn't really say "pick up bread and milk after work." Then the investigation will continue. Trump must be guilty of something and by George they are going to find it.

There is not one Democrat worth voting for. The scary thing is when I look at the Republicans that will come after Trump finishes his term, I'm not sure I see any worthwhile candidates there either.

The real problem? There is NO DEMOCRAT party! The old party is long gone, replaced by a bunch of power-grabbing socialists and anti-Americans. It is time they are voted to the permanent minority and let politicians who uphold their oath of office be elected to represent Americans (and NOT represent criminals and illegals)

Great news for Plugs. With 20 losers on the stage he would only have to answer 1/20 of the stupid questions. If I had a question I'd ask Plugs: After you find the cure for cancer, can you find cures for ED, the Heartbreak of Psoriasis, and Dutch Elm Disease. All questions to Lying Lizze Warren should be in the Cherokee language. All questions to Beta should be asked by Big Bird. Even though comments about Creeping Climate Change have been ruled out, anyone who got there by flying instead of riding a bike should get the boot.

Is there anything Joe Biden can't do? Joe Biden told an audience in Ottumwa, Iowa Tuesday that his White House would "cure" cancer should he beat President Trump in 2020. "I've worked so hard in my career, that I promise you, if I'm elected president you're gonna see single most important thing that changes America, we're gonna cure cancer," Biden said to applause. First he's teaching Detroit's illiterate single moms the easy-peasy art of computer coding, now he's promising to conquer cancer. Good thing we have Old Joe, otherwise cancer might never be cured. Why didn't we think of it earlier?

Doctors and hospitals are in the gunsights of many Democrats who want Medicare-for-all as a draconian price control scheme by government over all medical care in the US. Hospitals are told they charge too much and doctors are vilified for earning too much. What a relief that a sugar daddy has appeared, a rich boyfriend, a benefactor with a fat wallet, ready to bestow his financial largess on financially strapped healthcare providers. This sugar daddy is named Gavin, tall and handsome with good hair.

The Democrat-led House has been notoriously do-nothing about anything other than attempting to impeach President Trump. No budget, no promised infrastructure bills, no health care reforms, not even an explicit condemnation of anti-Semitism, and shamed by socialist-led Mexico for doing zero about a massive migrant surge pouring over our southern border. Actually, on that front, less than zero, given that they passed a bill to incentivize additional illegal immigration. A real bright bunch, and quite likely to be thrown out come 2020, given such a record reflected in their 20% approval rating.

It’s been a full year since the FCC repealed “net neutrality.” And how have the predictions of doom and gloom held up? In the short time these Obama-imposed rules were in effect, the regulations suddenly became the only thing standing between a vibrant internet and a hellscape of greedy Internet Service Providers blocking access to sites, creating slow lanes, making it impossible for new entrants to get a foothold. From every corner of the news media and advocacy world, we heard how repealing these onerous rules “would be the final pillow in (the internet’s) face” (The New York Times),
Waterloo for the National Popular Vote movement? 8 replies

AT readers don’t need to be introduced to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, the desperation measure concocted by the Democrats in an effort to make an end run around the Electoral College by pledging states to abide by the popular vote. Fourteen states, along with D.C., have so far passed the compact. One curious provision is that the compact does not go into effect until the number of electoral votes involved reaches 270 – a simple majority which would guarantee a candidate’s victory. The number of electoral votes controlled as of now is 189 – clearly, the promoters have been concentrating on large jurisdictions.

The leftists running California's one-party state have done it again. They've rolled out a $312 billion budget that includes $98 million for free health care for illegal immigrants under the age of 26. That's a dinner triangle to all able-bodied foreign nationals working off the books that the free ride is about to arrive. According to the Sacramento Bee: The expansion will take effect Jan. 1, 2020 and cost $98 million in the upcoming fiscal year. It will make California the first state to allow undocumented adults to sign up for state-funded health coverage.

President Trump walked hard and carried a big stick this week to bludgeon Mexico into honoring its January 2019 deal to halt illegal immigrants at its southern border. As a key implementation requirement in President Trump’s October 2018 restructure of NAFTA, a side deal titled the Migrant Protection Protocols was subsequently signed by newly inaugurated Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in January 2019. The MPP committed Mexico to increase security along its border with Guatemala and to shelter returned illegal aliens caught sneaking across the U.S. Southern Border “for the duration of their immigration proceedings.”

Last April marked the thirty-third anniversary of the disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. This date is devoted to many publications of memories from participants in the aftermath of the accident and ordinary residents who lived close to the site of the tragedy. The release of the series Chernobyl on HBO caused a sensation not only in the U.S. but also in Ukraine. Judging by the reviews in the Ukrainian segment of Twitter, the film made a massive impression on Ukrainians. They note its veracity and attention to small details.

Unfortunately for the junior senator from New York, it takes more brains than she possesses to pull off unprincipled political pandering. Over the course of her political career, Kirsten Gillibrand has demonstrated a willingness to embrace any policy or group that she thinks will work to her advantage. When she represented a rural-ish upstate New York congressional district, she was all for the Second Amendment, but when elevated to the Senate (to replace Hillary Clinton), her principles reversed themselves. But then again, Bill Clinton was flexible in his principles depending on political advantage and got away with it with enough

In Congo, the ebola epidemic is back. Axios has a disturbing chart showing a sharp arc upward based on Congolese government data. Total cases have gone to from virtually nothing last August to 2,031 now — and the data suggest that the trend has not peaked. That's news, because right now, Congolese migrants have begun crossing our unguarded southern border in large numbers. According to the Voice of America: U.S. Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 150 African immigrants [sic] attempting unauthorized crossings into Texas at the U.S. southern border within the past week, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Introduction Shortly after the Civil War and the passage of the 14th Amendment, the US Supreme Court decided the Slaughter-House cases. Historically, many people have looked at these decisions as severely limiting the ability of the federal government and federal courts from interfering with state government functions by using the Privileges and Immunities clause of the 14th Amendment. Regardless of your position on that debate, this article looks at how the decision by Justice Miller in 1873 actually provides a strong precedent for using the Privileges and Immunities clause of the 14th Amendment against all sanctuary states, counties, and cities.

The list is long and includes director James Comey himself, deputy director Andrew McCabe, counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, attorney Lisa Page, chief of staff James Rybicki, general counsel James Baker, assistant director for public affairs Mike Kortan, Comey’s special assistant Josh Campbell, executive assistant director James Turgal, assistant director for office of congressional affairs Greg Bower, executive assistant director Michael Steinbach,

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg knows firsthand the burden of six-figure student loan debt. He and his husband, Chasten, are far from alone, though, and their personal college indebtedness is helping to keep the issue on the national stage. With loans totaling more than $130,000, they are among the 43 million people in the United States who owe federal student loan debt. The debtors are so numerous and the total debt so high — more than $1.447 trillion, according to federal statistics — that several of the Democratic candidates have made major policy proposals to address the crisis.

Reading Jim Acosta's new book "Enemy of the People" is like watching a train wreck in progress, with passengers bracing for the inevitable crash. Friends and critics agree we have never seen a president like Donald J. Trump, whose disdain, even contempt and apparent hatred for many members of the press is almost daily on display. Acosta cites instance after instance when this President and many of his staff show that they are bent on interfering with the ability of reporters to bring the public an accurate account of the administration's stewardship.

Freshmen Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants Congress to give itself a $4,500 pay raise next year. That would boost her salary to $178,500. And that’s not counting the many perks members of Congress get, all courtesy of taxpayers. But even that isn’t enough for the self-described socialist. AOC scoffed that a 2.5% bump in pay was “not even like a raise.” Before that, she grumbled that her income was merely a “living wage.” She also complained in a tweet that if lawmakers don’t get a raise, it “makes campaign finance reform *harder.* ” And it “increases pressure on them to keep dark money loopholes open.” It makes one wonder if AOC understands

California wants to look after its people, so it keeps expanding its social safety net. It also wants to welcome all comers and so embraces illegal immigrants and protects them in sanctuary cities. To see how this is working out, visit Skid Row in L.A. or neighborhoods in San Francisco or elsewhere where homeless camps are spreading. Caring for all Californians is made harder by the state importing as many non-Americans as possible. It's almost incredible, but also entirely characteristic, that California lawmakers have now decided to give healthcare free to nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants aged 19 to 25.
